    Anyone here visited Korea?

    What would you call a 'must visit' for TKDin?

    I haven't visited Korea, but I think Kukkiwon is a must for every Taekwondoin. Another place would be Taekwondo Park World Headquarters as it contains valuable resources that you may not see in any other martial arts (Formal R&D in TKD? Yep, it's there).

    You're right. I've visited and trained at both, and there are invaluable resources at both. These 2 locations are definitely a must. I'd say the Seokgeuram grotto is also quite important for the link to Keumgang, along with Folk Villages throughout Korea to understand the heritage behind the philosophy of Taekwondo.

    Is there an ITF academy too these days or just a headquarter?

    Just a governing body, they organise events and instructor courses in other countries and in Korea but don't seem to have their own premises for those purposes.
